    I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and staff benefits

    Cons

    Very highly stressful environment with a generally under experienced managing team. As to be expected, the customers in Wetherspoons can be very rude and aggressive since it’s often a place students will binge drink.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    20% staff discount off shift at all Wetherspoon's across Ireland and the UK, including hotels. 50% off while on shift.

    Cons

    Overworked, understaffed. Not very well paid. Management are very unprofessional. No care at all for staff welfare. Very high staff turnaround. No training will be provided, despite saying that full training will be provided and despite it being illegal to handle and serve food to the public without specific training. Terrible hours, "full time" contracted workers will not be contracted for 35 hours. They will tell you that you will get more than your contracted hours, but don't bet on it.
